Is Warren Haynes' style a good fit for The Dead? and, can anyone point to a show/song/solo that qualifies as memorable? So far I've yet to be moved.

warren is an excellent guitar player. his playing is already integral part of the dead sound. some like it, some dont, but the fact is that it is NOT the grateful dead sound, which cant b reproduced. its something else

I think that nails it - I do like Warren but I can't listen to any GD music w/o my ear aching to hear Jer. I don't denigrate anyone from going out and playing those tunes (indeed, I really like Cracker's take on Loser), but no Jer means no bucks from me. I'll stay in the old folks' home with my memories...

No. And I like Warren, but I like him w/ Govt Mule not in this current configuration (not that I fault him for wanting to do it).

not really...and I did'nt like Herring much either.
Kimock and/or Jorma would be my choice (they both were wonderful with Phil & Friends)

Trey might be a fit, but he aint much of a vocalist-imo

trey can sing in tune. that is about it -- he is just not very pleasing or to say the least soulful... maybe singing mountain music in a church he would sound great, soulful and the like. but singing rock and roll -- he isn't very appealing.

not when you think of the really good ones. dylan couldn't sing too much but boy, soulful and interesting to listen to.... it boils down to GIFT OR NO GIFT i guess.......

Kimock would be the ideal choice but I Found herring way better than Haynes.

I know Kimock had a falling out with Phil and/or his wife, but The Dead also?

not sure. Some say it was over money, others say it was a personality clash with Phil's wife. Kimock has never commented officially.

I heard the thing with Phil's wife was about drugs

whatever, to me there's proof that Phil's bands haven't been even half as good without Kimock

No, there'll never be another Jerry. Once in our lifetime deal. Warren Haynes is a monster guitar player, and rather than criticize the guy for what he can't do it might serve everybody better to praise him for what he can.
